NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH GUN REGISTRATION ... AND FREEDOM IS SLAVERY

Reno Suggests Licensing Gun Owners To Curb Crime
By DAVID WASSON dwasson@tampatrib.com

TALLAHASSEE - Former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, still weighing a gubernatorial run, suggested Friday that licensing gun owners would help curb violent crime.
[...]
"My approach to guns is anybody who possesses a weapon ought to demonstrate they know how to safely and lawfully use them, and if they don't do so, take them back," she said later.

Reno insisted her position differs from gun registration, describing the effort instead as licensing firearm owners "for each gun" they own.

FOUR speed cameras on the same stretch of road are bearing the brunt of public resentment at the nationwide crackdown on speeding.

The devices, which are on a 15-mile stretch of the A40 in Gloucestershire where there is a 60mph limit, have been vandalised in recent months by motorists furious at the growing number of cameras lurking on Britain's roads, police believe.

REBELS, RIGHTS TRAMPLED, TAKE UP ARMS:
NATO, TRAMPLING RIGHTS, TAKE UP ARMS

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) - NATO authorized the deployment of 3,500 allied troops to Macedonia, hoping the mission to collect and destroy rebel arms will nudge Macedonians and ethnic Albanians along the road to reconciliation.
[...]
The full deployment, including several hundred U.S. troops focusing on limited logistical duties, is expected within 10 days to two weeks.
[...]
Several sites will be established for collecting weapons. Locations probably will change frequently. Most of the weapons will be transported to a central point, from which they will be taken to Greece and destroyed.
